Deadpool 3: Rumored Synopsis Includes Huge Marvel Spoilers

Looks like Wade and Logan will be traveling through various MCU phases


Warning: The following might contain spoilers for Deadpool and Wolverine.

With less than 90 days to go before Deadpool and Wolverine finally arrives in theaters, product tie-ins are starting to surface and some are bound to reveal a detail or two about the movie.

In this case though, an updated plot synopsis from, reveals quite a lot about the upcoming summer blockbuster.

The new plot synopsis, which has since been taken down, reveals the following about the movie: “Not only will [Deadpool and Wolverine] be working to defeat a range of villains plaguing the Marvel universe, bub, but they’ll be gate-crashing the MCU franchise, too, and putting their own R-rated, 20th Century Fox-styled twist on some of our favorite moments from Phases 1-4!”

That tracks given the glimpses revealed in the recent trailer footage along with the CinemaCon footage.

What happens in the Deadpool and Wolverine CinemaCon footage

The Deadpool & Wolverine footage presented at CinemaCon highlighted Wade Wilson’s characteristic mix of humor and action. At one point, Wade walks into his surprise birthday party and quips, “If this were five years ago, you’d all be dead.” The scene then shifts to a light-hearted moment where Colossus expresses his love for The Great British Bake-Off. The dialogue also touches on the boundaries set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Deadpool noting, “Cocaine is the one thing [Kevin] Feige said is off-limits.”

The footage also explores the complexities of Wade’s life, showing his interactions with Rob Delaney’s Peter as they reminisce about their days as superheroes, with Wade declaring, “I’m done.” Deadpool is now a car salesman, but the arrival of the Time Variance Authority (TVA) at his door shakes things up. Mr. Paradox, a member of the TVA, explains their role to Wade: “We’re really a watchdog organization… we’re in charge of defending the Sacred Timeline.” He then informs Deadpool of his mission, “You’ve been chosen for a higher purpose… one that could save the entire Sacred Timeline.”

At some point during the exchange, Wade watches Thor crying over his body on a monitor. Paradox reveals, “That happens in the distant future.” The footage then transitions to Wade at the TVA’s tailor, where he insists on keeping his katanas as he’s fitted for a new suit. As he gets into a car with Wolverine, a comment about his outfit prompts Wade to say, “Why do your friends let you leave the house looking like you play for the Los Angeles Rams?” The footage ends with Wolverine’s blunt response, “Shut the f–k up.”

Directed by Shawn Levy, Deadpool and Wolverine also holds special significance as it marks the character’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The film is set to maintain the R-rating that has been a hallmark of the Deadpool series, even under the Disney umbrella.

Deadpool and Wolverine is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for the latest news about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
